As I was leaving the campus, I heard the strains of Mardi Gras music coming from the parking lot, and it was glorious to behold. To coopt a Shakespearean quote, “though they be small (in number), they are fierce.” Our Fighting Irish Band and performance groups will be marching in several of the Mardi Gras parades this year including Mardi Gras Day.
We are getting ready for a number of events, including the English Language Proficiency Test, NAEP and the ACT. We ask that you encourage your children to do their best, get a good night’s rest prior to each testing event and eat a healthy breakfast.
We’re excited to announce our Alpha and Alpha-Beta Honor Rolls as well as our students with Perfect Attendance. Our list of students achieving honor rolls continues to grow, and we look forward to celebrating their accomplishments. Don’t forget that we will have both an ELL Parent Informational Night on February 6, 2018, a Parent Informational Night to discuss scheduling for the 2018-2019 academic year on February 8, 2018 and a second FAFSA Night on Wednesday, February 21.
Our athletic program continues to create a stir in the parish and state wide. Boys soccer will be heading to the Regional Playoffs at Lafayette High School on Thursday, February 8, 2018. We’re thrilled with their success, and we’ll be cheering them on as they depart for the game.
February may be the shortest month of the year, but it certainly makes the most of its days. If we were a krewe, we’d definitely state that the good times are rolling in the KINGdom!
Filled with Fighting Irish Love of Carnival,
Ms. Sharon Meggs-Hamilton
